FORE! Four students represent CTK in Caddie Program

CTK sophomores Teniya, Gwendolyn, Tamari, and Dae'sha spent their summers out on the links representing Christ the King in a prestigious golf caddie program   As four out of 80 girls selected from around the nation their summer days started early. They were on a shuttle bus at 6 am with other caddies for a ride to the Westmoreland Country Club on the North Shore. For each of them, this was there first experience with the sport. 
As members of the Western Golf Association Caddie Program, the students spent seven weeks living on the campus of Woodlands Academy.  By day, they worked as paid caddies for Westmoreland's members.  In the evenings and on weekends, they had the opportunity to experience living in a residence hall, eating in the cafeteria, and using the tennis courts and dance studio.  They also listened to guest speakers who presented on a range of topics and even had time for a few golf lessons. Day trips to the Navy Pier and the Botanical Gardens allowed them to explore and learn new things off campus.
"This program was about more than just working as a caddie," said Teniya. "It provided opportunities to make connections with people from all over the U.S. and to learn to live on my own."

Way to go Gladiators!
